The Drentsche Patrijshond was brought to the Netherlands via France and Spain in the 16th century. In the Netherlands, this breed was called the retriever. Throughout its history in the Netherlands, the Drentsche Patrijshond was used for three main tasks: as a versatile hunting dog, as a farm dog and as a playmate and guardian of the children of hunters and farmers. They were all-purpose dogs. The Drentsche Patrijshond was able to hunt all kinds of animals, including pests and vermin. The Raad van Beheer op Kynologisch Gebied (Dutch Kennel Club) officially recognised the breed in 1943. Five years later, in 1948, a Dutch breed club called Vereniging De Drentsche Patrijshond was formed. They established breed standards to ensure that the dogs could fulfil their original purpose as hunters, guard dogs and family companions. It was not until 2010 that the American Kennel Club (AKC) introduced the Drentsche Patrijshond into its Foundation Service.
